Live Your Best Life While Looking Good & Feeling Better

Some people may say they have more important things to worry about or just simply don't care how they look, but it's 2019, lets stop pretending appearance has no importance and talk about why we all should give a d**n about how we look. I'm not saying your appearance should be at the top of your priority list, but I am saying the matter should be somewhere on the checklist...hopefully at least in the top 10. I think too often we associate caring about your appearance to being self-absorded or shallow - caring about how you look has such a negative connotation amongst so many. However, I'm going to share 3 reasons why it's time for you to start putting some time and effort into your appearance and guarantee you'll be sure to see a positive ROI.

Reason #1: A well-put appearance creates a positive first impression.

Like it or not, we are naturally judgmental creatures. We see something and we automatically make mental assumptions about who/what we just saw. A person who is well-put in appearance will suggest a certain level of intrigue and respect by others. If you take the time, effort, and pride into up-keeping your appearance, you will radiate an image of self-respect and self-worth. A bad first impression can be hard to redeem yourself from, so make an effort to present yourself in a positive fashion...the first time.

Reason #2: When you look better you feel better.

We tend to perform better in life when we feel that we deserve to perform better. Truth is, there's an automatic assumption that a well-dressed person should be treated with respect, and this is typically the feeling you get as you're taking a few minutes to spiff yourself in the mirror before you leave home. This sort of reinforces in your own mind that you deserve success and respect.

Reason #3: You become a step above competition.

If we're being honest, most guys don’t dress particularly well because they simply don’t care or either they think it’s something only women care about. Guys should care about their appearance too, and quite frankly the bar is very low for dressing better than most other men because they don't hold it to any priority. Being put-together in appearance will boost self-confidence and will set you a step above other men.
